Full text not available from this repository.


This paper develops a dynamic life-cycle model of fertility and career choice. The model allows for the endogenous timing of births and number of children, labor market participation, hours of work, wages and selection into different occupation. We structurally estimate this model combining detailed survey and administrative data for Germany. We investigate the effect of children on careers, taking into account the loss of human capital from career interruptions and through selection into more child friendly occupations. We identify the model using two distinct sources of exogenous variations: differential changes in regional availability of training positions over time during adolescence and firm closures.
